My approach and the result
After reading the competition form I’ll made my own decisions which result in the style showed.

I started with the design contest for EDGE by comparing the logos of the participating schools. 
My first thought when I see the four logos is that they are all modern, clean and without everything unnecessary. 
Secondly, while I was looking for a color scheme I noticed that the use of color is absolutely minimal. 
Furthermore the used typefaces in the four logos are also modern and play a big role in the designs.
So after watching the existing designs I make my own new design, with the following points in mind.

Design points
Moodboard formed by word association
Targets of EDGE with explaining icons
Typography of EDGE
Font used is Segoe UI
Color combinations of EDGE
Handdrawn logo sketches
2 Logo design versions
Visual language of EDGE based on logo

1. Media
